    I have a 2005 2500 SLT with the factory drop in bed liner. I'm contemplating going with a spray-in liner.

    Are there any significant differences between Line-X, Rhino Liner, or any other brand of spray in liner?

    Also, what is an average price for application to a 6.5 ft bed?

    I am taking the same decision right in this moment.
    I was interest to become a Rhino Linings dealer in Italy back in 1998 so i know this product rather well.
    Yesterday i went to meet a Rhino Linings sprayer in San Jose Costa Rica and he did a nice job on his own truck.
    The liner was rather hard (harder than i remember) and has a nice non-skid surface like 40 grit sanding paper.
    Some people complain that Rhino Linings is too soft/elastic and that line-x is much tougher.
    As i don't load rocks, gravel or similar stuff in my trucks bed i think Rhino Linings is enough sturdy for my use.
    I need it mainly to avoid that the drop-in bed liner scuff-off the pain inside the bed.

    It seems to be the consensus that linex-x is better and tougher for hard core applications.

    The price was very nicly low for the expensive life here: 650$ for black Rhino Lining the whole 6.4ft truck bed floor and walls including bed caps.

    You may go to see your local dealers to see how well they work!

    My truck has had rhino liner on it since new and its holding up well. Normal use, nothing excessive. It was $450 here to have it sprayed on.

    Linex is about $500 for a bed in my area. Lifetime warranty. Not that I can afford that lol

    Its not a bad idea to call around locally and get some quotes and question warranty. After all, its a truck bed that is exposed, and nothing lasts forever.
    Not sure what I have, but my dealer did it and it holds up great! Especially with all the logged wood I bring back to the house, the quad, and anything work related
